This report is an output of this global multi-stakeholder Network which was created to enhance capacities and cooperation and to enable an integrated approach to the Sustainable Development Goals on water (SDG 6) and energy (SDG 7) and the interlinkages with other SDGs, particularly SDG 13 on climate change. The Network objectives include sharing best practices, experiences and lessons learned, capacity building, and global awareness. The report seeks to inform the ongoing expert and public policy debate on sustainable water and energy solutions addressing climate change with a view to facilitate information exchange, enhance local, national and international cooperation, and stimulate collaborative development actions that leave no one behind in terms of water supply and sanitation, access to sustainable energy, and protection from potential negative impacts of climate change.
